Appliance Repair Pros throws out the trash.
Half the battle of keeping modern-day, trash compactors and other appliances in excellent working order is taking the time to load the drawer properly. Just ask our appliance repair team members. They’ve seen their share of misloading mishaps and the amount of tears those compactor disasters have caused property owners. So, to help stem the tide of compactor related frustration, we’ve assembled some loading tips and jotted them down in today’s blog post. We hope that you find them valuable enough to pass along.
Don’t put glass or plastic bottles near the drawer’s sides, front or back. Place them squarely in the center of the drawer and on their sides instead. Otherwise, they may shatter or roll in a way that alters the standard performance of the trash compactor’s drawer or interior ram.
Do remember that liquid logged trash has a tendency to splatter during trash compaction. Granted, the liquid won’t splash out on to your kitchen floor but it will make an unnecessary mess nonetheless. Consequently, our appliance repair team recommends wringing out and disposing as much liquid as possible from your household’s trash before placing it into the compactor.
Don’t forget about juicy fruits, meats and mushy veggie too. In order to keep them from splashing all over the trash compactor’s interior, contemplate wrapping them up in unwanted, plastic bags or used paper towels first. The unrecyclable bags and towels will help keep the unavoidable splatter to the bare minimum.
Do yourself, the environment and the trash compactor a solid. Refrain from running the appliance until the drawer is 75% full. Running it earlier than that typically just wastes time, energy and labor. Besides, many trash compactor manufacturers design their units not to work unless there is sufficient material available for compression.
